    Loved this recipe (and so did my husband, which is very rare). The only thing I did differently was: 1) I seasoned my chops with garlic powder and ground pepper and sautéed them in butter and canola oil and 2) I left out the balsamic vinaigrette and went heavy on the lemon juice. When the pork chops were done I removed them from the sauce and added to it a bag of Green Giant frozen cauliflower risotto medley, which I had pre-cooked per directions. Yes, I use frozen dishes in a pinch and that is one of my favorite go-to sides! I spooned that over the chops for moisture. My only complaint was that the pork chops were not tender. I'm not sure it is possible to make boneless chops tender. I will definitely make this recipe again and will be thinking about other things I can put this sauce on!!

    After reading other reviews I decided to adjust the vinaigrette. Not having that ingredient, I substituted red wine vinegar and only used about a teaspoon. I also added salt and garlic powder to taste. I doubled the cheese mixture to top our side of mashed potatoes. This recipe was a hit with everyone in the family. Highly recommend!

    This recipe is great!! Everyone loved it! However, I did only use half of the suggested amount of vinaigrette. I will definitely make this again.

    This is a family favorite and is often requested. I usually serve with smashed red potatoes, green beans and applesauce for Sunday dinner.

    From the comments I read, I added 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, and this turned out good.

    Looking at this recipe before the cooking commenced I thought how amazing these pork chops were going to turn out. The smell alone convinced my landlord to come over and check what was going on. Not to see what I was fixing but to make sure I wasn't storing rotten corpses in my kitchen. A single sniff was enough to guarantee I wasnt eating the rest of the night. One of those smells that makes you stop breathing, all together. I pep-talked myself into mustering the courage to continue fixing my dinner. I had to talk myself into talking myself into finishing dinner. Nearing the end, not knowing if I had the stomach or the breath to finish, I put the plate together and sat down at the table. As i casually ate everything else on my plate, constantly staring at these brain looking, idk [expletive] smelling pieces of what use to be pork, I knew I had to give them a try. Even though every fiber of my being was fighting this impulse I put the mystery looking meat in my mouth. It had the texture of the baseball spit out of the dogs mouth in The Sandlot and the taste of what I am guessing is what the Donner party endured.

    I will make this receipe again but only if I cut down the balsamic to about a tablespoon. The vinegar taste was too overpowering that my husband and I couldn't finish our plates.
